4:51 am
not be able to cross market after a certain point so let's plan ahead for that. and the morning commute is moving along well at 280, let's go to steve. still increasing clouds mostly dry, 50s on the temperatures, and we are getting an easterly breeze and the system will a line itself north to south and that does two things, it weakens it and slows it down. it is close knocking on the door and as we zoom in we still have a ways to go. not even cape mendocino could be raining. morning drizzle, evening rain to the north, the sooner you take it further north, they
4:52 am

4:57 am
finally starting to move. it is a good looking system and it is going to lose a lot of strength. again up would lean on this coming in slower and it is not even into cape mendocino so we have a ways to go. evening rain to the north so as soon as you take trick or treaters out, it will be better 60s on the temperatures, giants parade, we have not changed it and i have think it's right on the money and most of it is usually over my 11:00 in the morning. to the north and to the south there will be some rain coming in tonight. weekend looks good except for night and morning fox. coming up next, the death toll from super storm sandy continues to rise here is more
